A NOTABLE CENTENARY INVENTION OF BRAILLE GREATEST BOON OF THE BLIND [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 14 January 1929
A NOTABLE CENTENARY — — — ^F— '-- INVENTION OF BRAILLE GREATEST BOON OF THE BLIND Next year will be noteworthy to many throughout the world as the centenary of the invention of 'Braille,' the em bossed type read by the blind. In the year 1440, Gutenberg perfected the art of printing, but the condition of the blind was one of a stationary oblivion for over three- and a half centuries from that date until a blind musician of. Pane, one Louis Braille, gave to the sightless thc means of writing and printing the symbols pt music, litera ture, and numerals in raised dots, eas ily decipherable by touch. This year the blind will celebrate the first centenary of their enfranchisement into the same kingdom of enlightenment and culture as that into which their brethren with eyesight entered nearly 400 years earlier. Printing was the sun of thc Renaissance, illuminating the path of progress, and flooding witn light unknown regions of matter and thought; similarly thc invention of Braille type h...

SWIMMING N.S.W. 440 YARDS CHAM PIONSHIP VICTORY FOR NOEL RYAN. Svdnev. Januarv 13. Arne Borg had little difficulty in fin ishing first in thc race for thc 440 yards State championship at the Domain Baths yesterday during the first of the carnivals conducted by the New South Wales Amateur Swimming Association. Thc association does not throw its 'championships open to competitors from ouasidc the State, so Noel Eyan, a young Manly swimmer, who finished .ccond to the Swedish and Olympic champion, gained thc title. Borg went all the way. He seemed to skim along thc top of the water. His tactics were to press from the pis tol. He made excellent time for the first half of thc journey, and he was not extended from then onwards; other wise his time might have broken five minutes.
THE PLAY [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 14 January 1929
THE PLAY Evensen won the toss and sent May and Angel to face the bowling of Knight and Farrel. Both batsmen started very cautiously, the first three overs only producing seven runs, four of which were byes. May obtained the first four with a nice drive past mid on at the expense of Knight. Hunger ford relieved Knight and Ramsden took the ball from Farrell. The scoring quickened and another change was tried, Farrell bowling into the wind, vice Hungerford. The scoring imme diately slackened and with the total at 41 May gave a hard chance to Knight, which the fieldsman could not quite get hold of. Fourteen overs had been bowlert fpr the 41 runs recorded. Bolton went on with the wind instead j of Ramsden and May promptly helped j himself to six, followed by a four in the same over. At (50, Knight resumed at the railway end. Angel narrowly. escaped being run out soon artcr, tne ; ball rising and jumping over the wic ket. With tire store shoot showing 72, a separation was effected, May sn...

THE MIDLAND DISTRICTS DEMAND FOR NATURAL OUTLET THE JURIEN BAY PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 14 January 1929
THE MIDLAND DISTRICTS DEMAND FOR NATURAL OUTLET THE JTJRIEN BAY PROPOSAL. Mr. A. E. Green, M.H.R., has receiv ed a letter from the Prime Minister's Department, wherein it is pointed out that Jurien Bay was not suitably situ ated for defence purposes from a rail way standpoint, and that therefore the Commonwealth Government could not accede to the request to support the movement for the construction of a railway from Jurien Bay eastward. To some it came as a surprise, says thc Moora Herald,' that the Common wealth Government were approached to support the construction of this line 'from a defence point of view.' It is within our knowledge that they were to be asked to give it their support, in view of the fact that Mr. Brace had distinctly and emphatically stated at Albany that the question of creating natural ports for the carriage of pro duce was too big a question for States to undertake. With this support for a natural port at Jurien Bay the mem bers of the Railway League, would ...

BACK TO THE LAND VICTORIA'S IRRIGABLE FARMS OVER 4500 ACRES SETTLED LAST TEAR. Victoria's back to the land move ment has been stimulated by the suc cess of its great irrigation schemes. In the past decade the increase in po pulation in the areas served by these systems has been most marked. During last year the Water Commis sion has continued its policy of making available a sufficient number of hold ings to meet the requirements of ap plicants desiring to obtain irrigable farms under the provisions of the Closer Settlement acts.

A total of 241 applications was approved by the commission last year, for an aggregate area of 4510 acres, compar ed with 239 approved during the pre eeding year. Of these applications, 55 (mo...
